From the Herd

I just love the From the Herd stamp set. 
This card could be a fun Retirement card from everyone in the office — just add a
Happy Retirement greeting and you are all set.
From the HerdThis card has a few retiring items on it.  The From the Herd stamp set will be leaving on June 2nd.  The On Film Framelits and the Basic Hodgepodge Clips are both on the retiring list.  This card is pretty quick to make — only a few small coloring spots to add a little pizzazz.  My boss is retiring in a month and a half — this just might be his card.

Class of 2015 Graduations

Can you believe that school graduations are starting to happen?
College graduation are going on over the next couple of weeks.
Our elementary, middle and high school graduation also start as early as next week.
That means it's time to get those graduation cards made.
This is a card that I've been working on for some of the students at the high school that I work at — obviously our school colors are red and blue.  I used the Class of 2015 stamp from the Occasions Catalog.  I stamped it on Whisper White cardstock and then I cut it out with the Windows Framelit (another retiring product and it's half price while supplies last).  After I cut it out I took the window to my paper trimmer and cut the rounded pieces off to create a whole new look.  I stamped the Class of 2015 a second time and "fussy" cut it and popped it up on dimensionals over the first stamped image.  I hope the students enjoy this fun card.

It’s All About You Today

Today is my oldest grandson's birthday — 8 years old!!
Where does the time go!!
All About YouMy sister, Tina Rappe, made this adorable birthday card for him.
She can't be at his birthday party this weekend so she gave it to him early.
The words are from Hooray It's Your Day (page 16 of the Occasions Catalog).
The Lego blocks are from the stamp set Boys Will Be Boys (page 87 of the Annual Catalog).  The Daffodil Delight designer paper is retiring.  There are a couple of other retiring items on this card — the Party Pennants die (and it's on sale too — 40% off only $19.77), Finishing Touches for the zig zag border trip (also on sale 50% off only $4.98).  Those are some GREAT prices — don't forget to order them
before they are gone.
